LexisNexis Academic Company Dossier
The interface for LexisNexis Academic was revised earlier this semester. New content was added, too, such as Company Dossier. Company Dossier has three main parts: Company Dossier (look up a company); Dossier Create a Company List; and Dossier Compare Companies. Company Dossier searches look for known companies in more that 60 sources from organizations such as Hoover's, Standard & Poor's, and Disclosure. Financial data can be downloaded to a spreadsheet. The Create a Company list search can be used to create a list of companies, for example, in a certain industry and state that employ more than x thousand people. In Compare Companies, one can enter up to five company names or ticker symbols and get a table that compares them on various financials. LexisNexis Academic can be accessed from the Rod Library home page under Databases A-Z and also from this Rod Library Business Portal page. After connecting to LexisNexis Academic, click on the Business tab and then look for the Company Dossier option.
